Activation to Gamification

Brands who want to run scavenger hunt style campaigns for public relations, launch or marketing campaigns, special events, global get togethers, and internal engagement have used Social Scavenger for amazing activations. We work directly with you, and/or your agencies, to help achieve your goals.

The Experience

The Social Scavenger platform excels at activations of all shapes and sizes.

Challenge Types
Build, Buy or Both

Buy experiences-in-a-box, build your own from scratch or a combination of the two. Our admininstrative portal was built for big brands, so no matter who you are, we have you covered. Easily pre-configure experiences, update them on the fly, moderate submissions, export results, and share content.

Supporting Services

Social Scavenger enables great games. We empower people to create games that are inventive, fun and easy to play. During the activation, engage our team to provide additional services such as moderation, judging, messaging, and summarizing game play.

Social Sharing
Post Activation

The fun doesn't end just because your activation did. Players gather after events, whether they are in a physical location or simply visiting your provided microsite or social media. Reliving the glory as well as comparing videos and photos to others is part of what brings everything together into a fully integrated experience. Partcipants can download for their private collection or share socially with the world, it’s up to them.


The Social Scavenger platform has 3 tiers for branding. Easily roll out a game on our platform with our branding, or inject your branding into our Apps, or create your own Apps that completely hide the Social Scavenger brand.

Spotlight: Activations

On top of handing out product with a dynamic street team, ESKA wanted to engage participants around the city with a fun brand building activity to drive awareness around an expanded offering. The #eskaquest App was created to challenge participants to find hidden branded ESKA tiles using QR codes around town, unlocking fun sticker and trivia challenges, earning points, and qualifying for rewards.


"We wanted something fun and playful that would give consumers a positive brand experience, and a chance to interact with the ESKA brand, without making them feel like we are selling to them."
